Swatches: Why I Love ELF Products

Hi guys, I will be blogging about some parcels which I've recently received in the mail soon. But I reckon before doing so, I would feature some swatches of the products that I've been using and loving lately from my last haul.

All of the products mentioned in this post are from ELF which stands for eyes lips face, they are retailed at US$1.00 for professional line and US$3.00 for their studio line products. All of the products which I've bought from my initial order are from the professional line as I wanted to try out the brand first before taking a plunge in getting the pricier items. Unfortunately, at this point in time, all products can only be purchased from their US website at In order to get the products, I bought it through one of the sellers in who specialises in providing ordering service for US/UK retailers.

I've been mostly wearing the shadows from the ELF quad lately which I've pulled together by purchasing the compact and four eyeshadows. The colors are very pigmented and relatively easy to apply, if you are to compare them with the nameless brands in Malaysia. I particularly liked Golden Glow as an all over lid color and would sometime use Dusk as a highlight for my cheeks as well. However, the down side is that u might quite a bit of fall out from the shadows. So it is advisable to not pick up as much product on your brush.

Other products such as the Healthy Glowing Bronzing Powder and Luscious Liquid Lipstick are also my favorites as both are true to color and easy to apply. I like how the bronzing powder gives out a soft glow to my face and is really perfect for the all year tropical climate that I'm in. The Luscious Liquid Lipstick has a nice minty scent to it and I simply love how it feels on my lips. 

Have you tried any products from ELF?
